Annie Levin (nee Secretan) (1832 – 5 October 1903)

Annie was born in Stourwood, Essex.  She was the daughter of James Thomas Secretan, who was described as a gentleman.  She married Thomas Woodhouse Levin in Henley on Thames on 12th June 1862. In 1871 they were lodging at 12 Silver Street, with Mrs Wakefield who was a lodging house keeper.  By 1881 the couple had moved to 13 Trumpington Street, where they lived for the rest of their lives.  They did not have children.

Thomas Woodhouse Levin (27 April 1834 – 15 December 1904)

Thomas was the son of James and Mary Ann [nee Woodhouse] Levin.  His father was a wool merchant, and although he was born in Leyton, Essex, he grew up in Hackney.   He was admitted to St Catherine’s College, Cambridge in 1857, received his BA in 1861, and MA in 1866.

He worked as a Tutor and Lecturer in Moral Philosophy.  He appears to have published several books including: ‘ Six Lectures introductory to the Philosophical writings of Cicero [including notes on Academia and de Finibus]’, ‘The logic of money; an essay on the principles of currency and the theory of bimetallism’ and also ‘Notes on Inductive Logic’.  He died at his home of 13 Trumpington Street, leaving effects with the value of £470.
